Manny Pacquiao won’t step in the ring tonight until Game 7 is over.
Tonight Pac Man will not step into the ring until after the completion of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Pacquiao is a Celtics fan and like the rest of the world knows that this could very well be the last time we see these two incarnations of these teams get it on.
According to CSNNE.com, fight promoter Bob Arum has Manny’s back with the excuse.
“Now Manny, the Heat, the Celtics and sports fans watching the basketball game won’t have to make a choice between events,” said Arum, who added that the undercard fights would begin at 9 p.m. “They will be able to watch both.”
Celtic coach Doc Rivers was amused by the turn-of-events.
“He’s a Celtics fan. What do you expect?” Rivers said. “Pretty cool, though. That’s cool.”
If the Heat win and Pacquiao loses his belt to Tim Bradley, add that to another list of the things that LeBron James is responsible for.
